    First time here? Get the fried chicken. Second time? The sausage biscuit egg and cheese with a side of pickles. Go early to avoid the crowds or be prepared to get a cocktail and wait for a table.

    This is one of the most popular spots on the UWS and you don't need to like pickles to enjoy this southern hot spot. Best brunch on the UWS and a great place to grab a drink and late night feast

    I've tried a lot of stuff here and it's all great. I love the ham egg & cheese on a biscuit, the BBQ jack sandwich, and the jam jar. Always expect a wait here! 🍗🍳🍓

    Came here on a Sunday for brunch (more than 1hr to get a table!) but the wait was so worth it. Super crowded, but the food is good and the cocktails are great. Loved the Rosemary vodka lemonade. Yum.

    chicken and pancakes! what a combo. Jacob's is an amazing value in terms of the calories you get for your dollar; make sure you get the biscuits, and be prepared for a wait beforehand

    I challenge you to eat the southern BLT like a sandwich! Between the friend green tomatoes, incredible buttermilk fried chicken, and the towering pickle slaw this is a mountain of food!

    The Founders Rübæus, or the Peak Organic Fresh Cut Pils (probably the best beer they’ve ever made), are a great for balancing the acid of the pickling liquid.

    A pleasant surprise. Jacob's Pickles has some of the best Soul Food in New York City. The servings are enough for 2. Pick your favorite and go for it!

    Chicken bacon egg & cheese on a biscuit is the best choice for brunch or dinner. Start with a rosemary vodka lemonade and a pickle sampler. The mac & cheese is amazing, but leaves you feeling guilty.

    This place is so good. I never tried fried pickles, but now I think it’s the best thing ever. The BLT sandwich could feed a family, it’s huge, so was the pancakes with fried chicken (super delicious)

    Def not vegan friendly (except for pickles) so eat ahead of time! Awesome beer selection, including homemade rootbeer, and great ambience make up for this, though!

    The salad wedge appetizer is an amazing amalgam of blue cheese, cherry tomatoes, bacon, and of course lettuce. True: delicious, crunchy, crisp, flavorful. False: nutritious.

    Weekends are packed, get here when they open at 9am to ensure a table. Otherwise, they will text you when your table is ready so grab a brew next door at E's bar - reasonable prices for craft beer.

    From the eclectic seasonal cocktails to the massive portions of southern inspired dishes, this place has everything. Good for dates or even for a group. Don’t miss the fried chicken & pancakes.

    It's a good place to go, friendly and with a delicious food. I've been there with my 2-y-old daughter and the music it was little bit loud to us. The food is well served! Be careful or will waste.

    I love this place. Appetizers are amazing (Get the biscuits and fixins!) Drink selection is fantastic. The porch sipper is good for anyone who likes whiske. Definitely an uws staple for me.

    Standout brunch items include the biscuit pancakes & buttermilk fried chicken combo, the equally decadent biscuits, gravy & fried eggs plate, and the biscuits french toast. Do not attempt on a diet. Read more

    Amazing southern food, probably my favorite restaurant in the UWS as well. They don’t take reservations for parties under 6 so put your name down and check out E’s bar next door while you’re waiting

    Baby back ribs are good—the flavorful meat easily fall off the bones. Don’t forget the poutine and the specials. Just a warning: you might end up with more taters on the table than expected!

    Best meal in NYC so far. Sausage gravy buttermilk fried chicken biscuit is like a hug in your mouth. Grits are just okay. All endorsed by a true Southerner.

    The fried chicken and pancakes are heaven in your mouth. Be warned though: the serving size is enough for 2 people! If you’ve got room, try the mac and cheese too!

    The biscuit bread pudding is so warm and soft and balances perfectly with the ice cream. Bonus: Jacob’s also has the best fried chicken and biscuits in Manhattan! Read more

    The food here is fantastic! The shredded pickles with the chicken are just an irresistible combination (even though it sounds weird). The collard greens are good too -- not too vinegary.

    Everything here should work: great combinations of flavor, extensive beer list, cool atmosphere, even the music (too loud tho). The food was bland, the shared tables too crowded, service overworked.

    The honey chicken and pickles biscuit sandwich is fantastic - swap out grits for fries if you want. Challenge yourself to actually eat it like a sandwich, but have tons of napkins on standby.

    The Bloody Mary at Jacob’s Pickles is a piece of art, assuming your idea of art involves topping things with eggs and bacon. They'll also hook you up w/ addable beets, cucumbers, carrots, and pickles. Read more

    Very amazing food! Be aware: the plates are big. We ordered two plates to share together, could only finish half. Was worth to try both though!

    This place is good. These plates are HUGE. Honestly, one plate could feed a family of four. The “table sides” are big enough for a table of four or more.

    Chicken good. Pancakes good. Bacon good. Grits good. Home fries good. Throw them all together, sip on some beer and you may just get transported to food heaven.

    I normally try their specials of the day, because they're always great. But the sausage gravy smothered buttermilk fried chicken biscuit is so much comfort in one sitting

    I gave it another shot & had the fried chicken biscuit in mushroom gravy & it was delicious! I couldn't sub the cheese grits for mac & cheese so we shared it- it was a huge order plus creamy & cheesy.

    If it's your first time make sure you get a biscuit! For a lighter menu option try the fish tacos - super flavorful and filling without feeling heavy.

    The biscuits and fixins is worth making room for but it's a healthy portion so consider sharing with the group. Start and end with the maple butter!!

    Came for midnight drunk snacks... and OMG, so spectacular, esp the poutine dish (massive and not "real" with curds, but phenomenal) + so many pickled veggies (spiced to perfection)!!!

    The $16 pickle sampler is absolutely enormous, good for the whole table. You can't go wrong with the pickled green beans or the loaded Bloody Mary.

    Chicken Pancakes were fine. Chicken was acceptably crispy & moist, but a little bit spicy which I don‘t particularly like in this combination. Pancakes were okay. The portion easily feeds two people!

    My favorite restaurant in the city! I have never gotten anything here that I haven't loved. Make sure to get some pickles, dilly beans, candied beets, and something with biscuits (or a side order).
